See https://www.ebay.com/itm/254756657751. Seller mentions that dial scale shows AM and FM but plastic dial cover does not. Anyone who has bought from this seller knows that he packs radios well.

Larry,
Take another look. I swear I see FM on the lower part of the dial and am on the top.

This one does not have the common warped plastic dial. It may go for $500+.

Henry, it's the plastic dial cover that isn't right. The labeling next to the second knob from the right should be AM FM PHONO if it's an AM/FM Jet. See https://www.radiodaze.com/setchell-carlson-511a-jet-faceplate-item-fp-sec-511a/.

That faceplate could well be one of the Clint Blais repros, he only made one version. I bought the biz from his widow in 2003 (during the great midwest/east coast power blackout !). I still have one of the repros left and I just checked and its a match to that one. They were made in plastic, not sure if the originals were glass or plastic. I think he made a run of 25 of them back in the early 90's.

RadioDaze makes THREE different types of dial covers for the Setchell Carlson Jet radios. AM only, AM / FM , and AM plus 2 short wave bands. Radiodaze created the AM + 2 short wave bands for me as of now I have the only known to exist AM + SW Jet. So this one on Ebay can be fixed for $99.95 for the correct AM / FM dial cover plus tax and shipping.

Those also are not original knobs. Originals would be black or ivory, these radios never had brown knobs on them.

Will Bender says the serial number is 511A-1142.

Rodney is correct on the Knobs for these Jet radios. I had a terrible time finding 4 correct knobs for the one I have. There are several very similar knobs out there. Similar in ivory color and very similar in physical style. Price on this one just about right. $600 bucks for the radio and another $100 to get a correct dial cover. Glad Will is shipping this one it hopefully will survive the shipping gorilla's.
